  • Another canal

    Looking through Barrie's excellent canal pictures, I thought it was time to share some of my local canal: the Oxford, which runs alongside the town centre and in part between the shopping centre and the car parks.

    The first was taken a week or so ago: it was too cold to stay long, and I "saw" this in black and white



    Going back a day later, it was totally different: about 5 degrees C warmer, for a start off, although I thought the brave souls sitting outside the museum care were a little foolhardy



    We've also managed to retain the boatyard - when the shopping centre was built there was a public outcry when the local authority said that it would have to close.



    And climbing above the canal and looking back either side of the road bridge crossing it:





    Unfortunately I don't get time during my lunch hour to get away from the town centre, so the only birds I see are swans and ducks - very jealous of Barrie and his kingfishers and herons!

    Hi Caz -

    That is an interesting set and pleasing to see life around the shopping centre.

    I find the canal a restful place to be and it can be so interesting too.

    Regards. Barr1e

      Enjoyed seeing these.

      The first does look good in mono.

      Looks like you were being watched in the 4th shot.

        Possibly... he was also walking into direct sun, so hopefully he didn't see me up on the bridge!
